P is for Poetry





Poetry the greatest form of writing in my opinion. I love poetry to see how a person can take a few words and create an emotion, an imagine to breathe life into words. Some of my favorite poets are Plath, Thomas, Whitman but even greater then those are my friends Rafa and Hilde who to me are two of the most powerful writers I know. They have this magnificent way of drawing you in and making you feel or see something you never thought you could. Their writing is powerful, emotional, raw and it just blows me away every time I read what they write. Do you have a favorite poem, poet or maybe you yourself write? If so leave a link to your favorite I would love to see what you find interesting and enjoyable.

Broken

Shattered in pieces

torn apart by pain

fragments of my heart

lay bleeding

vicious and violent

you riped without care

laughing with glee

at each tear

left in shreds

in a pile to die

broken

Sometimes I would love to try writting a poem but have no idea were to start it is just not someting that comes easy to me and I admire those who can write poetry

Love your new poem! But they are always so "painful", even sad! I do write poems myself and I have had some published in collections in both Australia and England. My friends are urging me to put them all into a book and publish them. My next project!

Mynx said...

I think you are one of my very favourite poets. Love you and your beautiful words

I love this poetry Becca, a world without poetry would seriously suck in my opinion, great post. Pink is one of my favourite female artists too, she's such a talent.

Like Jo-Anne, I can't seem to be able to write poetry, but you do it exceptionally well my friend, and I always enjoy the emotions conveyed in your words. Todays was no exception. One of my favourite poems is Stop All The Clocks by W.H. Auden, ever since I saw it many years ago being read at a funeral in the film, Four Weddings and a Funeral. I just think it is so sad and perfectly describes losing someone that you love very much.

Becca:
I concur with Mynx, your are one of my favorites and proof is in my complete addiction to your weekly "Thursday's Thoughts." (hopefully, today's is an added bonus and we'll see another tomorrow..nudge, nudge).

You are always my dark angel, bringing to light our most vicious of fears.

Thank you--

Rafa

P.S. I've been really down on myself of late with my own writing (or lack there of anything worth a damn)...funny how a friend can come to the rescue with just a few words of encouragement. Thank you for the shout, as well...perhaps unbeknownst to you, it was very much needed!

I LOVE poetry and poets. They al seem to have lead amazing lives. It makes mine so mundane :( but Myths and Mythology is just another word to me. My escapism!
I am pleased that you like what I am writing! :)

Stacie said...

I cannot write, so I really admire anyone with that gift.

Ducky said...

I LOVE Pink! Thats one of my favorite songs. I think all her music is my favorite ;O)

Fabulous poem as always. You manage to speak straight to my core and I connect with it so well.

I have some of my own but I don't know that I'm brave enough to share them.

Emmy said...

Yea, I just will never be a poet like that

Lucy said...
